On Holiday

By Heather Webber / Heather Blake

I love the word "holiday" used in reference to vacation. An English term, I think? Anyway, I think I need to insert it permanently into my vocabulary.

Sabbaday Falls in NH
This week the family (me, Mr. W, Baby Girl, and son #2) are away. Relaxing. Having fun in New Hampshire--quite a bit away from home. We've been doing lots and lots--walking, hiking, picnicking, alpine sliding, mini-golfing, horseback riding, shopping, eating (a lot), reading (tons!), and just soaking up the mountain air.

In a few hours I'll be on a raft in the middle of a river, probably clinging to anything (or anyone) I can. And probably screaming like a little girl. It'll be my first time white water rafting, and I really hope I'm not thrown overboard (please!). I'll let you know how it goes.

Anyone else doing something new this summer? Taking any special holidays?
